Do you call your inlaws Mom and Dad?

I don't feel comfortable doing so and they used to act hurt about it.

  • No...not sure I would feel comfortable either especially as my mum has passed away and I just wouldn't want to call anyone else mum.

    If you are not comfortable you are not comfortable - if my in laws wanted me to call them mum and dad but I didn't I would hope they would understand that I wasn't comfortable and not be too upset about it.

  • No, and I'm sure it would be weird for all of us if I ever did. My husband also does not call my parents mom and dad.

  • I'm divorced; both my former mother-in-law and father-in-law are deceased but I never felt comfortable calling them mom and dad.

  • NO! I don't call my MIL anything nice at all. I LOVE my FIL but I call him by his name.

  • No. I never did with my first set and with this new set, they don't speak our language, so even if I did, they wouldn't know what I was saying. :)
